Thick as soup; viscous as gravy

Hard bites break bonds
of superficial corps.

Soft fuzz tormenting expressions

Languishment becomes yearning

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. really nice. Some might think it’s minor, but I totally dig the way that Apricot changes size as it moves from title to ending. Really great response to the MTB prompt. Thanks

  2. nice….i like the turn in that last line…and the repetition of Apricot as well…hard bites break bonds is a key line for me as well…

  3. Enjoyed this! You have really captured the essence of the fruit (one I love but seldom have an opportunity to eat)!

  4. Hard bites break bonds
    of superficial corps

    … powerful!

  5. Nice. I like how you’ve described a fruit, and make me think of life.

  6. Perfect response, Bat-Ami! I enjoyed the layered-ness of this.

  7. If I were promoting this fruit I’d use your poem!

    To whatever you get from weed.

  21. Love apricots! like the wordplay of the homonymic “superficial corps.” And the picture made my mouth water, I’m not kidding. Nice to see you, Tammy. Peace, Amy

  22. Love your description of an apricot. I love apricots, but your description makes them
    seem even more luscious ! You captured the apricot as I wish I could have…☺ They
    are more mysterious now !
